WOMAN by WOMAN: New Hope for the Villages of Indian (Hindi Version)


Publication date 2001
Publisher Concentric Media
Digitizing sponsor David & Lucile Packard Foundation
Hindi language version.

WOMAN by WOMAN documents the story of progressive change for women in some of the least developed villages of India. Vivid images portray the humanity of the people, the beauty of the countryside, as well as the poignant toll of centuries old poverty. We meet courageous women who are coming out of seclusion in order to serve in their communities by teaching other women about family planning resources.

We also meet family members who support these efforts - a village husband who works side-by-side with his wife, in a culture which is traditionally male-dominated; a mother-in-law who encourages her daughter-in-law to work in the community rather than live in seclusion in her family compound, and a woman who counsels village women about reproductive issues and wants her own daughter to get a college education, rather than get married as a teenager. The film documents the work of one particular non-profit group in India, Janani, which works to improve the status of Indian village women and men by making family planning resources more readily available.

All public, educational, and government access television stations (PEG) and community media stations have permission to broadcast this film and any of Dorothy Fadiman's other films.
